Wage Garnishment Lawyers in Indiana
Don’t let creditors invade you and limit your freedom
The idea of wage garnishment frightens most people. They worry that employers or colleagues may find out about their finances. You have a job and are working hard to pay off or get caught up on all of your debts. However, a creditor has decided he can’t wait any longer and wants to garnish your wages. If you don’t want your employer to garnish your wages, you need to contact an experienced Indiana bankruptcy attorney immediately for help.
Wage garnishment is a legal process in which the creditor gets a court order requiring the debtor’s employer to withhold a certain amount of the debtor’s wages until the debt is paid. Garnishment can be used to collect on any type of debt. While the Consumer Credit Protection Act prohibits the garnishment of all of a debtor’s wages, even garnishment of some wages can make it difficult for the debtor to pay regular living expenses. In addition, it can damage employer-employee relations. An employer cannot terminate an employee for garnishment of a single debt. However, the employer is allowed to do so if garnishment is required for multiple debt obligations.
If your creditor threatens to garnish your wages, contact an experienced Indiana garnishment lawyer to help you. Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be an option for you. When you file a petition for bankruptcy, your creditors are automatically barred from taking any action against you, including lawsuits, threatening phone calls and wage garnishment. Filing for bankruptcy releases you from your debts.
